Reenactments are lessons

This letter is a response to the letter to the editor, “Disrespect in reenactments” (June 8, 2018).

Disrespect or glorification, I don’t see either one in the Civil War reenactment on the West Plains of Spokane. I see the reminder of “man’s inhumanity to man” as a lesson, not a justification.

Reenactments are a focus for many plays, performances, movies, books, etc. They can be used as a lesson of what is right or wrong.

We should not hide our heads in the sand. Exposure can serve a purpose. Disaster is not a foreign experience. My cliches could go on.
